RIDE OKC
A NOTE FROM THE OWNER
 R Y A N  +  A S H L E Y 


We are Ryan & Ashley Fogle – the husband & wife behind Ride OKC.
You can find us in downtown Oklahoma City in the City Center across from the Myriad Gardens. The idea for Ride OKC was inspired by our love of travel and desire for a more bikeable city.
Most people have no idea how cool Oklahoma City really is. With knowledgeable local tour guides equipped with a fleet of comfortable easy to ride bicycles, Ride OKC helps people connect with the city on a deeper level. Our immersive bike tours specialize in highlighting public art, architecture, Oklahoma history, and locally owned businesses.
 
We love exploring cities by bike because you discover so much more due to the slower pace and panoramic views. Our flagship tours are the Art & Architecture Tour and the Bikes & Brews Tour which are available six days a week. We also offer Custom Tours, Team Building Events, and Special Edition Tours throughout the year such as the Haunted Ghost Tour and Holiday Light Ride.
 R Y A N  +  A S H L E Y ' S  P I C K S 

 S H O P 

We’re big readers so you’ll often find us at Commonplace Books in Midtown. Shop Good and Plenty Mercantile in Automobile Alley are we go to find that perfect gift. Ryan’s working on a green thumb at Southern Window and Ashley loves Salt & Water for all her skincare needs.

 E A T 
The Garage in Midtown makes for a quick and reliable meal. Slow weekend brunches at Kitchen 324 in the City Center is our jam. For special occasions we like Ludivine in Midtown and Red PrimeSteak in Automobile Alley. Most mornings you will find us at Clarity Coffee in the Arts District.

 P L A Y 
Riding bikes or the Streetcar is how we like to turn the city into our playground. We love bouncing around breweries like Prairie Artisan Ales, Vanessa House, Twisted Spike in Automobile Alley and The Study in the Arts District. We also enjoy seeing the latest art exhibits at OKCMOA and OK Contemporary or even relaxing in the Myriad Gardens. We’re also excited about the Art Afloat concert series on the Bricktown canal coming soon.
